Departmental Policies
The policy of the State Government is not to encourage indiscriminate growth in consumption of intoxicants but to socially regulate it in a manner such that even with respect to the existing pattern of consumption, drinking is conducted in a safe manner, i.e., the persons who are already consuming intoxicants turn away from consumption of illicitly distilled/ non-duty paid intoxicants to socially regulated consumption of intoxicants from authorized and legitimate sources. This would ensure both safety against health hazards and also lead to a consequential growth in revenue.
